Together with interdisciplinary collaboration & educational programs, Biotonomy works to advance the development, uptake, and upscale of Nature Based Solutions for autonomous buildings & cities.
Biotonomy’s vision is for Nature Based Solutions to become a natural part of the way we design & build our future. We envision a world where buildings and cities are designed to actively restore ecosystems.
How it all started...
"The moment I understood that biological design principles can be used to develop autonomous buildings, was the moment Biotonomy was born in my mind."
Moein Nodehi, Founder
Moeins passion for the natural world & architecture goes all the way back to his childhood. His admiration & curiosity for ancient architecture led him to study International Architectural Engineering.After working on some of the largest construction projects in the world, he quickly realized how destructive conventional architecture was for the natural world and human wellbeing. This realization gave birth to a new dream of designing buildings & cities that could harness and utilize the power of nature.
He spent over a decade analyzing & building existing construction systems based on nature-based solutions and began to perceive their shortcoming in scalability and esthetics. He decided to take on the task of building a scalable concept that would take into account biological design principles and ancient wisdom.
